My Journey Going to UK.
It is Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago wants online journalists and bloggers included in Philippine Senate Bill No. 455 seeking to protect journalists, although I didn’t vote her during her presidency election. There is no reason why we should not include in the proposed law, because many bloggers post socio-political commentaries using our own web-based journals. Even though we are not traditionally referred to as members of the media, we may actually be exposed to the same dangers encountered by institutional media practitioners.
Santiago cited as an example the case of Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, who was reportedly subjected to harassment and threats after his website published sensitive and confidential information, including hundreds of thousands of US diplomatic cables, so bloggers should likewise be given protection by the law.
